    My old gran used to put cucumber peel on her face when taking an afternoon nap. No wrinkles at all at her (oldish) age. My other gran swore by it, too. And it is supposed to keep skin blemishes and cancer at bay.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
